My husband can’t seem to get past it.
Everyone just assumes we want to.
I haven’t been able to quiiiiiite let it go yet.
My extended family is still holding out hope.
My two sons are split on the topic.
What is it??
HAVING A GIRL.
My mom is my best friend. I can imagine having a little “mini me.” In fact, before Andrew was born, I could picture myself with anything other than a daughter!
I NEED someone to pass my jewelry, collectibles and treasures on to AND it would be VERY fun to teach a daughter everything I know about God, beauty, men and LIFE. I’ve always said that it would be cool to having the experience of raising both genders.
But as I’ve already said, I WILL NOT go into a pregnancy in hopes of specifically getting a girl. I’m not even convinced that I WANT a girl! They are rumored to be more clingy, needy, emotional (well, that one is a fact), harder to raise and to cost more money. Plus, do I REALLY want the competition for attention?? I am very happy being the queen of the castle–I’m not sure I want a princess!
I am a self-proclaimed Fertility Nut. I bet I could increase our odds of having a girl. And if we decided that we really WANT a girl, and we asked God to help us out…I bet He’d be OK with it.
So the question still goes back to, “Do we want to have another child?” And if so, do we want to “try for a girl”?
My heart seems to be drawn to the idea of adding one more munchkin to our brood. Just not quite yet. I’d like to get my thyroid check and get into better shape and I’d like to help our family get into a better financial position. But…there’s always next year.
I’ll be looking into it. And thinking it over. And praying about it.
The story continues!
